Also - can't believe we're almost at the point where we'll need to start Part III of this thread!

Speaking of the mine coaster ... any new photos of that area? It seems like the construction progress photos have dried up ever since the opening of the other areas. Did we all get bored with construction photos , or is there another thread where I can find them?

I am sure this has been mentioned before but I was wondering, Has there been any guesses as to when the mine car roller coaster will open?

As we are going this fall I am hopeful that all these rumors that disney is very disappointed with FLE returns thus far...that it will mean pressure to SpEEd up the coaster!

Nope, seems like it's been pushed back another 2 weeks.

Found an article with a number of pictures of the area though: http://www.orlandoparksnews.com/2013...gled_6712.html

Thanks for that link!! It looks awesome! LOVE the tower and the lanterns!!
We ate upstairs at Columbia last month and watched them working - the finishing touches are really beautiful.
My DGrD20mos is going to freak over this - she has been obsessed with Tangled since she was just a few months old - knows all the songs lol.

Please Please Please let there be a meet and greet here - it won't make any sense to me if there isn't.

The area seems quite large just for bathrooms..
Love the posters! Is one of the buildings a snuggly duckling?

It was rumored that there would also be an area for charging your electronics there too, do maybe that's why its bigger??

This is what the mine train area looked like last week when we visited. There were barriers all around it, which have the most adorable posters of the seven dwarfs interacting with various other Disney characters in a subtle way, like holding a "hunny" jar.
Right now the barriers pretty much cut off the "princess" part of Fantasyland from the Storybook circus.

Amazing! I do hope/wish they were doing more with the Rapunzel area, but it looks great. I can't wait to see it in May!

They do open them sometimes. We were there for President's Weekend and were in the MK on that Sunday (early! We left around noon) and the walkway from Under the Sea to Dumbo was open which really made the area feel more complete. I can't wait to see how the whole land works once the walls are down.

My only criticism so far is the new castle rampart walls. They are very pretty, but they just stand alone in the middle of the grounds and they feel oddly redundant. It would have been better if they had completed the run of the wall to connect at both sides (i.e. near to Pinocchio, over to the old Snow White ride) with archways underneath to allow for guest flow. As it is, they just stop in the middle of nowhere.
